Specially-abled and Special Circumstances Catechesis
Specially-abled and Special Circumstances Catechesis and Sacrament Prep:
Do you have older kids who have not yet been baptized?
Or older children who have not received First Eucharist?
Does your child have special learning needs?
We are VERY HAPPY to help!!I
is whatever families tell us they need to help bring our specially-abled brothers and sisters closer to Jesus, closer to their St Thomas Parish Community, and more fully participating in the Eucharistic Liturgy!
Our specially-abled brothers and sisters in Christ are:
*Included, if they choose, in appropriate parish classes with Inclusion Ministers to help them integrate.
* Specially prepared to receive sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation. We schedule these sacraments (except for Confirmation) according to the needs of the individuals.
* Invited to participate in Sunday Liturgy in a special and meaningful way.
Most of all, our Specially-Abled Brothers and Sisters are the Face of Christ among us. We recognize that. We cherish them. We value them. We’re humbled by God’s gift of them to us. We call these brothers and sisters ‘Specially–Abled’ because we recognize that they have a most special ability to help us, their typical friends, by broadening our love, growing our humility, and igniting our joy!!!
Please call or email me and we’ll talk about the specific needs of your specially-abled family member and how best to meet those needs!
